A Memo From Superintendent Tracy Wrend
Per the most recent guidance from Governor Scott and the Vermont Department of Health (VDH) we have escalated contingency planning for the closing of schools for students by the end of the day Tuesday, March 17. This directive will last through April 6 - but may need to be extended.
LSUU schools will remain open on Monday and Tuesday. Parents may choose to keep their children home due to concerns related to COVID-19 or upon medical advice or guidance from the Vermont Department of Health. These absences will be excused. Middle and high school students may follow instruction through Schoology. Other individual student work will not be sent home this week as faculty and staff will be focusing on keeping learning on track in schools, supporting all in following prevention guidelines, and planning for instruction and essential services remotely.
We are asking for your support and understanding with the following steps specific to the schools of LSUU:
For information and support, please feel free to reach out to your school health office or Jordan Myerson at [email protected] or 802-585-4087.
We are continuously monitoring local developments and consult with the Vermont Department of Health and Agency of Education and will take additional local action as needed. Stay tuned for more information about how you can help. We are grateful for the many offers we have already received for help with meal delivery and more!
